Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask. Monday, my child is joining the posyandu, incidentally there is only the polio vaccine, the DPT is empty. Then on Wednesday, I took my child to the doctor’s office. I reminded the midwife that my child had been vaccinated Polio. It turns out that my child is still being given the polio vaccine again. Is it dangerous .. Two days, my child’s body is rather warm, not as usual. Thank you in advance, ok?

Hi Kora,

The polio vaccine that is given by mouth is generally given at a dose of 2 drops per time.

Based on the standard of polio vaccine according to WHO, giving extra doses at a close time, will not cause harmful effects.

The side effects of polio vaccine can include: rash, low-grade fever, and diarrhea. Generally not heavy and will get better in 1-2 days. If not, you can check this directly with your pediatrician.

Our suggestions:

Keep up with your child's vaccination schedule regularly. Give drink more breast milk than usual, when your child has a fever. Warm compresses, or soaking in warm water, can help reduce existing fever. Hopefully this helps.
